Do you bring your own lap blanket & pillow on planes, or do you bring your own? I for one get quite cold onboard, so I bring a small, very thin fleece blanket, so it can be folded small, with not much weight at all...I have a travel u shaped neck pillow,that you can blow up, in a few puffs. I carry this duo, on the plane, for easy access. I gave up using the airline pillow years ago..bringing my own, assures I get both, when I want them, and I know where they have been.
Trip, with her book & tea!

No Trip, I haven't done that , but after my last plane and train trip, I decided it might be a very good idea, because I get cold easily, and always need a blanket. And since I'm usually zonked out on anti-motion sickness pills, a pillow would be nice too!
After freezing my way home from Chicago in July I have vowed that I will always bring a small fleece blanket with me. We flew Spirit on that trip and they didn't have any blankets. I'm flying to San Francisco in November to meet my sister for a sisters weekend so I'll definitely have my orange fleece. Yes, orange...yuck....it was a fundraiser for the band. I'll be easy to spot!
I have never brought a blanket, but I did use one of those U-shaped things. I thought it was a nuisance. On an overnighter, I just use an airline blanket. That way, there's less to carry, pack, and keep track of.
